Welcome to Ingleby Manor School, we are delighted that your child will be joining us this coming September.
Year 7 is a very special time for young people as it marks the beginning of their next phase in their learning journey and here at Ingleby Manor school we strive to help students make the transition between primary school and secondary school a positive and enjoyable one.
To prepare your child for this next step, we will be hosting a Year 6 transition day on Tuesday 5th July.
This annual event enables students to spend a day with us, sampling lessons across various departments and enjoying the atmosphere in school. It also helps in overcoming any worries or anxieties that your child may have in starting secondary school.
Below is an outline of what the Transition Day will look like:-
Arriving at School
Students can enter the school grounds from the front gate adjacent to the reception or the back gate adjacent to Ingleby Mill. Students will be greeted upon arrival and will be taken by staff and student leaders to the Main Hall.
Students are permitted to wear their own clothes for transition day.
During the day your child will have the opportunity to enjoy time within our PE, Drama and Food Technology departments, we ask that
your child wears clothing and footwear appropriate for the day to allow them to partake in activities that will be on offer within thesedepartments.
Food & Drink
Lunch will be provided free of charge, however students can bring with them a packed lunch should they wish. We do ask that anyone who brings a packed lunch does not include nuts as we are a nut free school due to severe allergies.There is a variety of food options available from school from meat dishes to vegetarian along with some sweet treats and fruit options for dessert.
Students will be required to bring with them a water bottle. This can be refilled throughout the day from one of our many chilled water fountains. Carbonated drinks are NOT permitted in school.
School uniform will be available to purchase and order from our suppliers Motif 8 & Elizabeth’s Embroidery who willbe here located in the Sports Hall from 3.30pm on the transition day. Parents will be welcome in school from this time.
Please enter directly into the Sports Hall via the doors adjacent to the carpark (not the main entrance).
Students are not permitted to have mobile phones in school. All students that attend school are to have their phone turned off and stored in their bag during the day.
Collecting your child
We ask for parents/carers to collect students at the end of the day at 3.30pm from the Sports Hall. If you would prefer for your child to walk home unattended, please email Mrs Chapman (Transition Coordinator) on email@example.com
